Re: MicroSim


For most of the parts in a conventional TC you will have to adjust parts
that are already present in MicroSim. A spark gap is too variable for
instance to have a 'stardard' library part. Both the Tesla pri/sec, NST,
variac and any other transformers can be modelled with the part
"XFRM_LINEAR" (I think). I have not tried making up a model of my own, but
have downloaded various model files from Terry's web site and changed the
values to suit my coil. An RFI line filter is usually just a couple of
chokes and a cap, so if that is missing you can cook one up fairly rapidly.

I downloaded the MicroSim programs from Orcad today, and after installing 
them and playing around for a while I have come to the realization that I 
have no clue what to do with these programs. They look like they could be 
useful but I don't know how to use them so that doesn't help much. I
the schematics section of the programs was particularly interesting but the

parts that are listed in that program have little use in TC application and

many parts that would have use are simply not there. Is there anywhere I
download parts libraries for this program that include TC parts such as 
variable trans, RFI line filters, spark gaps, and a number of other parts 
MicroSim doesn't have? And more importantly than that, what do I use these 
programs for now that I have them....and how? I hope this email makes 

Left, left, I hadda good brain but it left...
